Don’t wash the dishes.
Don’t feel like you need to check emails.
Don’t reply to people.

You just gave birth.

Don’t feel any guilt for anything.
Not for the birth. Not for the nurses. Not for how you gave birth.

Don’t take on anyone else’s advice. Unless you want to.
Don’t worry if your baby is in dirty clothes.
Don’t fret if you are having leftovers and that is getting to your baby’s milk.

Don’t worry if you don’t get that hipster baby photo with the cool baby wardrobe.
Don’t stress if you are fearful of every diaper change.
Don’t worry if your husband is stressed.

My dear friend.
In this moment.
You look after you.
In this moment.
Everything you are is perfectly enough. 
More than enough.

You just gave birth.
